The year is 50AD, the city Rome and 5555 fathers, sons and brothers arise with blood in their eyes. The roman God of War, Mars, is looking for his champion. He has chosen his combatants and they will fight until the winner has been found.
None of the warriors know why they must fight, but fight they must. None of them have seen their competitors before today but war consumes them all. None know why Mars needs his champion, they only hear his voice in their heads. He tells them that today, the Sons Of Mars, see only red.
